Fellowship of Greeters and Ushers

The mission of this Fellowship is to provide a warm welcome to visitors and members of St. James’ alike. The greeters and ushers are the first points of contact to those entering the sanctuary and offer assistance to anyone in need.

Fellowship Hour

Guild and lay organization members serve on a monthly rotation to prepare light refreshments on Sunday following the 10.30 a.m. service. At St. James’, this is a treasured time in which to greet family and friends in the spirit of love and goodwill.

Junior and Senior Youth Fellowship

Both Youth Fellowship groups provide a safe place for teenagers to feel accepted as they discover themselves and their relationship with God. The teens deal with problems related to their particular age group, such as relationships and peer pressure. They network with other youth groups and organizations and are involved with activities in and away from the church. The Youth Fellowship sponsors various fundraisers, including bake sales and the sale of candles and poinsettias at Christmas.
